Report: FBI Is Too Slow When Placing Suspects on Federal Terrorism Watch List

The FBI takes 44 days on average to place suspects on the federal terrorism watch list when they are referred by another agency, The Washington Times reports.

It takes even longer – 78 days – to remove cleared suspects from the list, according to an audit of the bureau.

The audit also found that the FBI takes 17 business days to add its own suspects to the list – if they are ever added.

To blame are “redundant and inefficient processes” at FBI headquarters, Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said in the audit.

“The report shows that the FBI has given its field offices too much latitude in terms of timeliness to add people to the watch list,” said Marshall Erwin, a research fellow and counterterrorism specialist at the Hoover Institution who has helped lead investigations for the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, the Times wrote.
